what is a server
What Is A Server?
  • In computing, a server is: A computer software application that carries out some task (i.e. provides a service) on behalf of yet another piece of software called a client
  • There are many kinds of servers
  • Some of those types of servers will be described in the remaining parts of this presentation

domain name server
Domain Name Server
  • A Domain Name Server (DNS) is the Internet’s way to map any valid and registered unique domain name to its actual Internet Protocol (IP) address:
    • cnn.com becomes 64.236.16.52
  • IP addresses from those four octets, define the actual locations of places on the internet
  • Internet Corporation For Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) maintains registrations

    • Dial-up
    • DSL (Digital Subscriber Line)
    • Cable

twin oaks internet presence
Twin Oaks Internet Presence
  • We own a location on the Internet identified by our second-level Domain Name
    • twinoakstoastmasters.org
  • We refer to our domain name for simplicity’s sake instead of its Internet Protocol (IP) address of 66.235.221.12
  • The first part of a second-level domain, such as “www” indicates the type of host (server) within a domain

Click mouse to continue

file server
File Server
  • A File Server is a specialized computer program that allows authorizedusers to place, use, and retrieve files within their dedicated folder located on the file server
  • We rent storage space on a file server for the club’s usage, such as:
    • Images
    • Web pages
    • PDF’s
    • Club schedule for members

email list server
Email/List Server
  • For club-wide email messages, we use an Email/List Server:
  • The email/list server is a specialized computer program that maintains a list of email addresses and associates that list to a particular email address
  • Any message and its content sent to that particular email address is redistributed to all valid email addresses maintained in that associated list
  • Note: Our list server club-wide email address is not publicized outside of our membership to avoid nuisance messages (spamming) being sent to our members

Click mouse to continue

    • www.twinoakstoastmasters.org
  • The President of the club assigns Webmasters as needed to keep the web and email/list server information up-to-date and useful
  • The web site accesses the files placed on the Club’s File Server within the folder structure or via links to external references on the Internet; such as content found on other web sites

Click mouse to continue
